I love to read and write poetry. When I'm not reading or writing, I enjoy carving and printing woodblock prints of some of my favorite poets to go along with some of my favorite poems which are listed at http://poeticexpressions.etsy.com. I also blog about poetry and share my poems at http://poeticmeditation. wordpress.com. To illustrate and complement my own poems, I've turned to photography to meet my specific needs. I found it to have added a challenging new dimension and satisfaction to my work. Here at fineartamerica, my desire is to share my poems and photographs with you and hope they bring a touch of poetry, beauty and a little joy into your lives.
